Oliver Dohn succeeds Dagmar Schmidt as new chief executive officer of XSYS

Departing CEO Dagmar Schmidt has played a leading role in the company for over 25 years, holding multiple executive positions, including as the group-wide chief transformation officer, chief operating officer, and since February 2022 as the CEO. During her tenure, she successfully led the carve-out of the company from Flint Group and transformed the business into a global leader in the flexographic printed packaging industry.

Schmidt also guided the company through the Covid-19 crisis and more recently has navigated the business through a challenging macroeconomic backdrop, with significantly increased raw material costs and labor cost inflation. Schmidt has now decided the time is right to pursue other endeavours. 

Oliver Dohn succeeds Schmidt as CEO of XSYS and joins the board of directors. 

Dohn most recently was the CEO of Felss Group, a private-equity backed global technology leader and manufacturer of components for the entire mobility industry. Prior to this, he held leadership roles at Oerlikon Drive Systems, Bombardier Transportation and General Motors.
